�I have often had the impression that, to penguins, man is just another penguin - different, less predictable, occasionally violent, but tolerable company when he sits still and minds his own business� – Bernard Stonehouse

Inspired by the epic bildungsroman of a young Emperor Penguin who, while playing in the ocean, finds himself tossed away from the Antarctic shore, chased by leopard seals, shipwrecked on the coast of Argentina, befriended by a sailor who sends him off to Canada by plane � while holding onto the external metal wings with very slippery wings of his own � where in turn he is purchased by a little girl in a toy store and continues to have several other adventures with the animals of his new home.

The original stories of �Peter the Penguin�, were written by my sister, Becky Sajo-Carovillano, who is a professional clarinetist with her husband in the duo Acclarion. This composition has gone through several stages over several years, originally a clarinet/piano duet, then a more mature clarinet/piano duet, and now finally a much more mature concert band composition. The chart is a light concert work that makes gratuitous use of polytonality, honking and snappy melody. Oh, and by the way, the last six bars for the low brass spell out �the end� in Morse Code.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
